University Grants: Higher Education and Scholarship in the Humanities

Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

The Foundation’s grants to leading research universities and institutes for advanced study seek to help institutions train the next generation of faculty in the humanities, strengthen humanities research, and renew and broaden disciplines, research areas, and curricula. Although some grants support projects that are specific to individual institutions, many are ranged within broader initiatives that encourage participating universities to exchange information about research outcomes and institutional practices. Through its grantmaking, the program aims to strengthen the entire system of higher education in the humanities, and enable lesser-resourced institutions to participate fully in it.
